The American Wisdom Series

Presents the Tell it like it is! series of studies:

This is Pamphlet #9300 Study #300 in our series. Much of it taken from The Revelation of Jesus Christ
The truth about:

There is nothing prophetically nor symbolically new in Revelation. The Book of Vision has been UNSEALED,
free and open for the partaking and understanding by God's "servants".

Revelation's introduction 1 begins after the line of red stars ************* below. 

Caution to students of God;s Word - Please remember two things when using our American Wisdom Series studies:
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Drake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God. 
May the Holy Spirit be your only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.

 We will start our actual study of Revelation with pamphlet #9301. Coming soon.


 Introduction to "The Revelation of Jesus Christ"

There is nothing prophetically nor symbolically new in Revelation. The Book of Vision has been UNSEALED,
free and open for the partaking and easy understanding by God's "servants".

Perhaps your preacher told you it isn't necessary to read the Book of Revelation
because you aren't going to be here when those awful events take place.

That's a great "cop out" because he can't explain it anyway.

His eyes are closed and he cannot see.

Isaiah said it best:

Isaiah 29:10
For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
Yep, they're sleeping. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz!
[11] And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
So, let's understand this. You take the Bible to one that is "learned", whom you will recognize as "learned" because of the title he carries, like PhD or Master of Divinity, and ask him to explain what candlesticks and stars represent in the Book of Revelation. And the "learned" says (as he lowers his glasses to the bulbous portion of his nose and peers ever so intellectually out over the frames), "My child, it is a mystery of God and it can be interpreted many different ways."

He's clueless!


[12] And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
So you ask a lay member of the church, one who has attended at least 35 years or more, and he says "Beats me. You'll have to asked someone who is learned".

Oh boy!

You're in trouble now.

What to do, what to do!

(Suddenly, you realize that you went to school and you know how to read yourself.)

Let's do just that starting in our next study, pamphlet #9301,
of this Book of Revelation in our TELL IT LIKE IT IS series of studies.

Not the revelation of John,as some people call it, but rather "The Revelation of Jesus Christ".

There is nothing prophetically nor symbolically new in Revelation

Perhaps those who have studied the Book of Daniel will recall
that Daniel was instructed to SEAL UP the words that he wrote until the time of the end,
when the wise would understand.

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
But we will find in verse 10 of Revelation chapter 1 that John was taken to,
and wrote from,
the time of the end,
and even beyond into the millennium.

So in contrast to Daniel,
John was given specific instructions by one of the seven angels,
whom we will read about shortly,
NOT TO SEAL the sayings and prophecy of this book.

That means that the Book of Revelation is UNSEALED,
free and open for the partaking and understanding by God's "servants".

Here is John relaying his instructions:

Rev. 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
So with the "lid off"
all we have to do is look inside and "see" what is happening.

And the best part is that most of it is like seeing an exciting movie
because the Holy Spirit uses pictures and graphic symbols to "show",
to explain and simplify, what it is He wants us to know.

In other words, not only is the Book of Revelation UNSEALED,
it has also been SIMPLIFIED for our understanding
by turning that which is difficult to explain with words into pictures that we can "see" clearly.

And guess what?

It is a documented fact that people remember infinitely more
of what they "see" than what they "hear" or "read".

Please allow me to digress for a moment:

I once worked closely with the man who carries the credentials of the "World's Foremost Applied Memory Expert". He not only has the #1 Medical Terminology course in the U.S., which teaches over 11,000 complex medical terms and their meanings in just 14 hours of video with a guaranteed classroom average of an "A", but he also has a program that can teach third graders ALL 100 of the basic multiplication facts in just 90 minutes. Here's how:

First he simplifies the task at hand by teaching four easy rules: 1.) The Little Rule, which is to always say the little number first, for the answer to 5 x 3 is the same as 3 x 5. This rule eliminates almost half the 100 questions. 2.) The Zero Rule, which is that the answer to any question with a "0" in it is "0". 3.) The 1's Rule, which is that the answer to any question with a "1" in it is the other number. 4.) The 2's Rule, which is that the answer to any question with a "2" in it is the same as adding the other number to itself.

After applying these Four Easy Rules there are only 28 questions left to learn in the multiplication table. In fact, in the "9,s" column there is only one question left (9 x 9), because the Little Rule eliminated the others.

Next, he converts the ten digits, 0 - 9, into the ten hard consonant sounds of the English language. For example 1 = T, there is one "downstroke" in the letter "T", 2 = N, there are two downstrokes in the letter "N", M = 3, there are three downstrokes in the letter "M", etc. The children learn to "sound-out" the letters, i.e. 3 = mmmmmmM. Now by adding vowels, which have no numeric value, he can form nouns and turn the 28 remaining multiplication questions into PICTURES they can see.

For example, the question 3 x 3 is turned into a picture of MoM, "mmmm"  "mmmm" (M*M = MoM), and they see a picture of a Mom. The picture is then made funny by showing MoM with a Pie on her head. A "9" flipped around becomes a "P", so 9 = "P" in the number code (remember vowels have no value). So 3 x 3 = 9, MoM = Pie. So after learning the "number code" and seeing 28 funny pictures, they KNOW their multiplication facts. The need for the pictures soon goes away and they are left with knowledge.

This teaching method is so powerful that later you cannot "unteach" the children. If you try to tell them that MoM had a TaiL sticking out her ear, they would correct you and say "NO, Mom had a pie on her head! We know because WE SAW IT."

The Book of Revelation teaches us much the same way,
using PICTURES, so that WE CAN SEE what is to be known.

And once we've "seen it" no one can take it away,
i.e. no one can shut the opened door.

We will know with certitude what is happening
and what is going to happen in the future because WE WILL SEE it.

Stay with us!

The movie is fantastic.

We also have a few "easy rules" to apply in learning the pictures of Revelation.

The first is to begin reading and studying the rest of the Bible,
for Revelation is the "last" book.

If you have read the entire Bible
you will basically discover nothing prophetically nor symbolically new in Revelation,
it's just that it is now tied together and simplified into pictures for us.

The other rules we will point out as we come to them.


To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.  We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
